Most of us fall into the same trap every year. Summer arrives and we realize once again we should have started getting summer ready just a little earlier.
Summer Tips to Get You Going
Luckily, it’s not too late to start implementing small changes to make sure you’re looking and feeling your best when that first heat wave arrives.
To make it easy—because we all know that effortless summer look can be anything but effortless—see below for some easy steps you can start today!
Switch up Your Skin Routine
Summer beauty is all about trading in the heavy creams and moisturizers for a lighter weight moisturizer and a sunscreen.
If you tend to have oily skin in the summer, try switching up your face wash. Key to perfectly clean skin in the morning and a night is a double cleanse. Wash once to get rid of any makeup and repeat to get rid of any toxins.
Did you know you should be wearing sunscreen all year? Well, if you haven’t, then this is the perfect time to start! Pick up an SPF?15 product with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection for your face, whose main jobs are to protect from sunburn, and with other sun protection measures, decrease the risk of early skin aging caused by the sun – you’ll thank yourself for it later.
Other sun protection measures include limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; and wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses.
A great option is Coppertone’s new ClearlySheer Lotion with SPF 50, available for both face and body.
This beach-level broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with SPF 50 won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. It feels clean, is lightweight on skin. Coppertone® Sunscreen Lotion ClearlySheer® Face SPF 50 works great under makeup so you can wear it anywhere from the office to the beach!
Mask your mane
To get your hair in top shape for summer, start treating your locks now with weekly hydrating hair masks. Frequent deep conditioning can help you avoid the frizzy, dry and brittle hair that can develop in the hotter months.
Get sandal ready
If you’re dying to step into this season’s newest strappy sandals, there are a few simple things you can do to de-winterize your feet.
Exfoliation is key for removing any unsightly dead skin built up over the winter months.
For most women, blisters are a fact of life but they don’t have to ruin the hard work you’ve done beautifying your feet. Scholl’s® Blister Cushions with DURAGEL™ Technology help prevent and protect painful blisters by reducing the friction and shoe rubbing that cause them. Plus, they’re almost invisible so you can use them discreetly, even in sandals.
Freshen up your footwear
In summer, the socks come off and we can finally wear our summer shoes outdoors without the fear of frostbite. Splurge on the perfect shoe – You’ve been waiting all year to buy them, so don’t wait any longer.
Try adding an insole to your date-night heels to stay comfortable on your feet longer.
For strappy summer sandals, try Scholl’s® For Her™ High Heel Insoles. The unique gel is practically invisible and the slim-fitting design won’t make your shoes feel too tight or crowd your toes.
The Gist of it
So to get summer-ready, be sure to adopt a skin routine convenient for the season in terms of moisturizing, cleansing and protecting (it might be a good idea to check out something like this skin lightening crème to help keep your skin smooth), as well as hydrating your hair to keep the frizz away. Most importantly, don’t forget to treat your feet with comfy insoles and have blister protection in your purse.
